When I was a child she even had a yellow convertible. She had a favorite yellow suit. I remember other yellow things and I think she liked yellow chiffon cake just because it was yellow. I am guessing that her jacket in the picture on the right was yellow.
I hated yellow.
My Mom was a perfectionist. Family history research helped me figure out some reasons for that. That is a story for another time.
So, why did she have a kitchen that was mostly grey and red? I don’t have an answer to that.
I guess I must take after my Mom in some ways. I now like yellow and the accent color in my kitchen is red. I wish you were here to see it, Mom. But only if the Alzheimer’s wasn’t present and that it hadn’t contributed to your death in 2008.
